My Invented Life

With Roz and Eva everything becomes a contest—who can snag the best role in the school play, have the cutest boyfriend, pull off the craziest prank. Still, they’re as close as sisters can be. Until Eva deletes Roz from her life like so much junk e-mail for no reason that Roz understands. Now Eva hangs out with the annoyingly petite cheerleaders, and Roz fantasizes about slipping bovine growth hormone into their Gatorade.

Roz has a suspicion about Eva. In turn, Eva taunts Roz with a dare, which leads to an act of total insanity. Drama geeks clamor for attention, Shakespearean insults fly, and Roz steals the show in Lauren Bjorkman’s hilarious debut novel.

I saw this book on Goodreads and thought it looked cool. So, I wrote the wonderful and amazing Lauren Bjorkman and she sent me a copy for review. Two words describe this book. Totally awesome.

Roz is a character that really illustrates how hard it is to be a teenager and field your way through the missles of everyday life. Boyfriends, drama performances, friends, frenemies, sisters who all of a sudden stop talking to you, parents, school...everything.  

When Roz notices something has really changed in her sister and the total shutdown of communication, she embarks on a course of action that will have you turning the pages out of sheer desperation to find out what happens. I loved this book. It will be staying on my bookshelf for years to come. Thank you Lauren for writing such an awesome novel. I can't wait to see what you are up to next!
